- Wedding: July 2013
I was thinking about this whole bridal shower tradition, and I’m not sure I want to have one. I’ve been to quite a few weddings and know that the cost can be quite substantial. We also have alot of traveling guests so that also increases the cost for our wedding. My Fiance and I own a house together and we have all the necessities. I mean, we could definitely upgrade, but its not necessary. Basically, although I know it’s typically part of a wedding, I feel bad about asking people for gifts when I know how much weddings already cost, we don’t need anything, and more then half the people will be paying for accomodations. My family/friends/bridal party are also spread across a couple cities/provinces which would make it kind of difficult to plan.
What are your thoughts on having a bridal shower? Are their any upsides that I’m missing, other then me getting gifts? Do you think that anyone would be disappointed or upset if I didnt have one? (my moms not overly traditional and my FI’s mom doesn’t have alot of disposable income)
Please share your thoughts!
